Editor's Foreword


After thirty years of service Dr. Samuel Proctor stepped down from the editorship of the Florida Historical Quarterly in June 1993. This event marked a special point not only in his long and distinguished career but also in the history of the Florida Historical Society. Accordingly, this issue of the Quarterly is dedicated to Samuel Proctor— “Sam” to his many friends— and to the many years that he has faithfully and effectively guided the journal’s fortunes.
